    • US B2 Visa Application

      United States of America Apr 22, 2015 at 8:25 PM

      My family is planning a visit to Hawaii later this year. Most of us are eligible for the VWP, but my wife needs a B2 visa since she holds a Malaysian passport, though she's resident in Singapore. From the website, I gather that there are a few hoops that she needs to jump through in order to just submit her application:

      1. Print out a form and pay the visa application fee (USD160 in SGD equivalent) at a Standard Chartered Bank branch in Singapore. No problem, there are a few around. But the bank will issue a receipt with a serial number which is needed later.

      2. Fill out an online form and upload a photo. No problem, although the form is like 20 pages long. Mostly done, but I have yet to submit the form electronically.

      3. Create a user account, login, submit the form together with the payment serial number from (1) above. This is the problem - I am unable to create an account. Calling the helpline doesn't help - the automated voice menu doesn't cover this issue and there is no option to speak to a person. There's also a chat function which timed out. There's just a generic error message that doesn't give any indication what the problem might be.

      So essentially I have to fork out SGD224 for her visa, with no guarantee that I can even get to submit the form if the account cannot be created. And the fee is non-refundable.

      Could anyone who applied for a US visa before suggest what I could be doing wrong, or what the problem might be? It could be that a new user account can only be created after the form has been submitted, but that means having to pay the application fee first. It's a leap of faith I'm not prepared to take at this time since the fee is not insignificant.

      We're continuing our quest of baseball parks this summer. KC, Arizona, and Colorado are on our list this year. We usually spend another day or two in the cities we visit. Looking for tips on where to stay relatively close to the ballpark, and other "must-see", "must-eat", etc. locations while in KC.

      Transportation/car rental

      Oahu Apr 1, 2015 at 4:58 PM

      Hi - cruising May 16-23 and then staying at Turtle Bay 23-26. I will need ground transport from the airport to the cruise terminal and then from the cruise terminal to the rental car. Prefer private transport but more importantly reliable and quick. Some people say just wait til I get there and others say its important to have it all set up before I go. Prices are all over the map and reviews are too. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • Hallie Ford Museum of Art

      by palley Online Now Aug 30, 2013 at 3:21 PM

      Why doesn't the Virtual Tourist guide mention the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, on the campus of Willamette University? HFMA is the only museum of its type and quality between Portland and Eugene, and it's a gem among university art museums. For people who enjoy visual art, HFMA should be a "must see" while visiting Salem.

    • Journey By Motorcycle from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

      by johnwispinski Online Now Feb 8, 2013 at 4:52 PM

      We are going to the 41st. BMW Motorcycle Rally from July 18 to 21, 2013 in Salem, Oregon. We want to know which scenic roads are best going down the coast of Washington/Oregon to Salem for the event and then which roads to take going east from Salem, Oregon into Montana and up again to Waterton National Park on the US/Canada border. We will be entering the USA near Abbotsford British Columbia. We want to stay away from major highways as much as possible.....any ideas? Of course we will be riding our motorcycles.Do not know the area at all and would like to take in the best scenery that we can. We have two weeks in total.

    • Does anyone know this restaurant?

      by TogaParty87 Online Now Feb 18, 2006 at 9:01 PM

      I remember going to a burger place in salem about a year and a half ago, and i was wondering if anyone knew what place i was talking about. i went there again recently in search of the place (they had really good burgers), but i just couldn't find it! anyway, all i remember about it was that it had coca cola stuff EVERYWHERE! it was completely decorated with coca cola memorabelia, and they had really tasty burgers. i'm sorry, but that's all i remember and all the information i can give u about the place. if you know where i'm talking about, please tell me, my mom's been bothering me about it because she says she really wants to go there again.

      oh! i just remembered something else that might be able to identify this place. we were in salem coming from lincoln city, going back south to california. i think the place was right off the freeway, but i'm not too sure about that. anyway, it would probably be right about wherever the 5 meets whatever highway it is that takes you out to the coast. sorry, i'm not a native, so i can't be more specific. but any information would REALLY help! thanks.
